after a sincere first meeting atty Begley did return calls or prepare for my divorce hearings. After a poorly written agreement, that she advised to sign after limited review of 10 minutes, I am now in court for foreclosure and stop bad credit as my ex wife was allowed to keep the home in my name. Begley never attempted to get 50/50 custody for me. Just stated it is easier and cheaper to not argue it. Now have so little time with my children, again back in court for that. When contacted short time after the agreement was signed and home in foreclosure, she replied let the court figure it out. not her problem.

From a Dad who's been trying to help his child so desperately over the last 12 years, Attorney Michelle Begley came on board like all other lawyers who're appointed by the court- SHE'S AWFUL! She tells you what you wish to hear and agrees with the 'PROOF' you've shown her (even Legal, DCF, and, school documentation; and, even my participation in my child's life with school and all else; the Springfield Parent Academy; tutoring; etc.); and, that you, although a Dad, are best for your child; Attorney Begley commiserates with you; sympathizes with you; has you send her documents 'you pay for' that 'PROVE' you're a good Dad!?!? And...For WHAT!?!?
THEN, in court, she acts like "WATER"...she takes the easiest path of resistance - she sells you out to a neglectful and abusive mom who invites sexual predators into her home to prey on 'your' child. She goes to mediation and goes against "EVERYTHING" of proof that you've provided that will benefit your child (she doesn't read or become familiar with court documentation); instead, Attorney Begley goes "WITH" everything that will benefit the neglective and abusive mom and her perverted friends whom she invites around your child...since it's easiest and 'politically correct' for her to side with a mom...and...she gets paid for this falsehood...ANYWAY!?!? What a farce!
